Wine Tasting Note: Cousiño-Macul Sauvignon Gris, 2006, Maipo Valley, Chile.
Purchased from Planet of the Grapes [more info] for £6.99.
Very pale, watery colour. Pronounced if simple aroma - lime, a touch of spice, a sprinkling of white flowers. The palate is very clean, very crisp, very pure flavours - light lime, touch of floweriness and a finishing twist of sherbet.
The initial tasting may have suffered by being over-chilled; the following day a little more complexity was evident; a tropical edge to the fruit, peaches and orange. Full bodied. Alcohol 14%. Treat as a Sauvignon Blanc but with a little more body and less gooseberry/mineral influence.
